Nobunny knows Easter quite like the Cadbury Bunny

I wasn't allowed to eat Cadbury Creme Eggs until the Easter Bunny brought them. This was torture for a kid who loooooved them! A few weeks before the big day, I'd start to see them in the store and BEG for one. Once in a while, dad would come home during Holy Week with an egg for each of us. Lent? Who follows Lenten rules when you're dealing with Creme Eggs? Not my family, that's for sure.

On a standard Cadbury Creme Egg there's about a quarter inch of chocolate right at the top. As a kid I'd bite that top off and try to suck out all the filling. The chocolate eggshell would begin to melt, coating my finger tips, which I'd lick off to savor the final moments. The ritual of eating a Creme Egg was as much a part of Easter as Sunday Mass.

Now every year I see Creme Eggs in the store and have the same longing. I almost always wait until Easter and I'm almost always disappointed. As an adult the experience just isn't the same. The chocolate is overly sweet with no depth. The creamy fondant filling is.. well... fondant. There's is little flavor other than the sugary sweetness.

Luckily, Cadbury is now making mini-eggs that come in tiny egg cartons. Each individual egg is about 1/3 of an ounce. Now you can buy the little dozen egg carton, eat one, remember it's crap and put the other 11 in the nearest child's Easter basket. Longing satisfied, problem solved.

I agree, I love to hate Cadbury eggs every year. I bite off the end and lick out the inside and throw away the rest of the chocolate!

I can't remember the first time I had a Cadbury Creme Egg.  I remember being supremely grossed out by them when I was kid because, you know, they looked like eggs.  But once I was convinced to bite into one, I was hooked.  The outside is silky milk chocolate and the inside is a granular sweet good that oozes out when you chow down.  It's true that some things might seem better because they are only available at certain times of year and maybe I wouldn't be so gungho about …
